Airbus's A350 will form the focus for the airframer at the upcoming Moscow air show MAKS.

One of the certification A350-900s – aircraft MSN2 – will be placed on the static line and also participate in the flying display from 27-31 August.

MSN2 first flew in February 2014 and the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-powered twinjet is fitted with a passenger cabin.

Aeroflot is a customer for the A350-900, with 14 on direct order. The airframer has yet to deliver the type to the Russian flag-carrier. It had handed over a total of 270 A350-900s and 25 A350-1000s by the end of July this year.

Airbus states that its presence at MAKS will feature large-scale models of the A350-1000 and long-range A321LR.

But it will also show off equipment manufactured by a joint venture between its defence and space division and Russian Space Systems, as well as projects associated with its Moscow engineering centre.
